over the years

Here’s a meme floating around that I spotted:

20 Years Ago, I…
Started graduate school. (Oi!) Had my first serious relationship (really, just bounced around more informally as an undergrad — was more interested in school). Also became completely financially independent from my parents (who paid rent and tuition during undergrad, something which I will be forever grateful for, and something I hope I can help my nephews with in the future). Travelled to Europe for the first time.

15 Years Ago, I…
Got my heart-dog, the smartest and most loyal dog in the world. Also purchased my first house (really a condo) with my then-husband whom I’d married the year before.

10 Years Ago, I…
Was about a year or so into my first serious long term job — after grad school and a few fits and starts, was settling down in this job. Purchased our first real house with backyard and everything.

5 Years Ago, I…
Had lost my job the year before (just before 9/11) and divorced the hubby before that…! I was trying to settle into a new job with an absolutely psychopathic [at the time] boss. This was a rather difficult time since so much changed. Started travelling again, went to Spain.

2 Years Ago, I…
Spent my birthday in Rome, going thru the Vatican! I also lost my heart-dog 🙁

1 Year Ago, I…
Lost my second dog. Started up gardening, and DYI projects around the house for maintenance (ouch) and personal enjoyment (finally got rid of all those white walls!)

So far this year, I’ve…
Learned sign language! I’ve gradually started cooking again as well, something I used to do in grad school. I’ve also been involved in Project 365, where you take a picture a day for a year. I’m closing in on the end of it, and may just continue it for fun.

Yesterday, I…
Had a ridiculously long day, leaving the house at 7:30 and not getting back until 10:30. That’s am then pm.

Today, I…
Started dog sitting a friend’s dog. This dog is seriously bouncy.

Tomorrow, I’ll…
Get to take a class from a teacher world-renowned in his art.

    That’s neato! I like the way you put the creative dates on this page! I am thinking about doing the same on my page.

    Your site is just perfect colored! 😉

  2. Thank you! I had a lot of fun picking out the colour scheme. I thought the original theme (Furry Palms) was pretty too…
